I will argue that not ALL drugs should be legalized.

Let's hear what Pro has to say. (Depending on his Round 2 argument, I may either go easy on him or I may go all out. This is his first debate, after all.)

Legalizing drugs would make them much safer. When we decide to legalize drugs, we can make the process of getting and using drugs safer. By passing drugs through the government, instead of passing drugs through drug dealers, we can make sure that dirty needles and like aren't used when drugs are being used. Also by passing drugs through the government, we can make it so that when users buy certain drugs, they know that that drug is what they"ll be getting, instead of another drug advertised as the drug they"re buying.

We can make taxes off of drugs. By passing drugs through the government, the government can impose taxes on drugs, providing a major boost to the economy.

I think Pro's overlooking why drugs are "illegal" in the first place; they are dangerous.

Yes, my opponent said " When we decide to legalize drugs, we can make the process of getting and using drugs safer.", but legalizing drugs doesn't make it healthy like that. There are many drugs which are dangerous, such as LSD, Heroin, Cannabis, and Barbiturates. Some drugs are illegal, because they're harmful to people. Legalization can't fix this, therefore those drugs should be illegal.

I doubt we'd want to legalize and consume lethal drugs. Arguments extended.

I will not consume LSD, Heroin, or Cannabis in my life. I will not consume addictive drugs, as it will be difficult to stop once I start, so I won't start at all. You know what to do.

I'm not that smart when it comes to drugs, but I looked it up.
